Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Extent and Grade of Prostate Cancer Using MRI [ Time Frame: Imaging followed by pathology analysis ]
    Before undergoing surgery, all patients were examined with MR imaging


Enrollment: 31
Study Start Date: June 2005
Study Completion Date: February 2008
Primary Completion Date: February 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
MRI - pathology Procedure: MRI Prostate

Detailed Description:
The purpose of this study is to determine the ability of functional MRI techniques [High Resolution Dynamic Contrast Enhanced MRI (HR-DCE-MRI), diffusion weighted MRI (DWI) and BOLD MRI] to detect, measure and locate intra-prostatic cancer. 70 patients undergoing MRI for staging of prostate cancer prior to radical prostatectomy will be studied. Results of MRI obtained prior to surgery will be correlated with pathologic specimens to determine MRI accuracy.
  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Male
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria
Patients will be recruited from the University Health Network (UHN). Eligible patients will be undergoing radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer at UHN. Patients with a contraindication to MRI or MRI contrast agents, claustrophobia, renal failure, allergy to MRI contrast agents, or prior hormonal therapy or radiation therapy for prostate cancer, a biopsy within 3 weeks of the surgical date or active prostatitis will be excluded.
